Nova Luxe brings you the best-selling powercat in North America, with a state of the art electric propulsion system. Nova Luxe has repowered a brand-new Aquila 44 with two electric motors provide continuous cruising speeds of 6.5 knots with a maximum speed of 9 knots. The light and powerful Torqeedo Deep Blue electric motors are powered by two BMWi3 batteries, a large lithium-ion house bank, a 25kW diesel generator, and a huge solar panel system. These four energy sources provide enough power to run the ships hotel and propulsion needs. Depending on your cruising goals, the yacht can be operated with zero emissions using solar power alone or for long distance continuous cruising, using the on-demand diesel generator, an 875-mile range at 6.5 knots is available consuming only two gallons per hour.
If you are tired of the annoying sound and toxic smell of two huge 2000-pound diesel engines, we suggest you consider our alternative. The 120-pound electric motors provide quiet emission free propulsion and when needed, the sound of the energy efficient generator is barely noticeable.
Nova Luxe provides boaters with a choice. You can now have the motor yacht of you want without the environmental impact of operating a large diesel engines. The Aquila 44 is the best-selling powercat in North America and you can now own one without the guilt of becoming a major polluter. Two large battery banks can provide enough energy to run the air conditioning as well as all of the ships hotel needs. During the day, the custom solar panel system helps replenish the batteries. The generator automatically kicks in when solar is not sufficient. While at the dock, you have a choice of charging the batteries with shore power or with solar power. If you are not in a hurry and the sun is shining, it is possible to run the boat completely on the solar system. When you need to get somewhere faster or for those long offshore legs, the generator powers the motors at two gallons per hour giving you a cruising range limited only to how much fuel you put onboard. The ship’s 300 gallon fuel capacity, can operate the generator for 150 hours and at 6.5 knots gives you a range of 975 miles. For shorter runs, the boat has a top speed of 9 knots. The following chart shows projected speed/time/range estimates.
The Aquila 44 Power by Nova Luxe was developed to be an exceptionally comfortable cruising boat; placing advanced technology at the forefront of all design and build decisions. Luxury amenities include watermaker, spacious salon and galley with 360 degree view, corian countertops, stainless steel sink, fridge and freezer. The 3-cabin, 3-head yacht features a forward cabin that spans her beam of 21' 6" and two aft cabins with ample headroom and large windows. All en-suite heads include separate shower stalls and teak flooring. The oversized flybridge features electric grill, added enclosure and sunpad seating on either side of the helm station.
